Very Rev Prof David Fergusson, Dean of the Chapel Royal offers us this prayer of thanksgiving for the life of Queen Elizabeth on the day of the Service of Thanksgiving at St Giles' Cathedral.
Almighty and everlasting God, before whom the generations rise and fall away,
With all across our nation and throughout the world
We lift up our hearts in gratitude today for the life of our Queen.
For her long reign,
Her delight in people,
Her commitment to crown and country,
To church and faith,
We give you thanks.
Today especially we recall gratefully her love of Scotland,
Our land and our people,
And praise you for all you accomplished in her life,
Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
